xp seems slow

  fire 12:49 08 Nov 2003

recentlt had new gigabyte board and increased ddr ram to 768 but when i come out of programs for example the icons on the desktop have to renew themselves for example and also if i type a page into explorer it doesnt give me the pages previously visited instantly as it did before...are there any reasons for this as i expected it to be quicker with the extra ram.....athlon 2000xp chip
